330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Bestillingsutvalget. Bubbly off-white head that stayed well and left fragile lacing behind. Bright amber coloured body. Oak vanilla on the nose, notes of nuts and rum as well. Vanilla ice cream taste alongside hints of ripe fruit and wood, spiced with cinnamon. Herbal hops to the aftertaste, bittersweet. Soft carbonated. Surprisingly easy to drink. I like drinking a bottle of the Innis & Gunn’s beers now and then (at home in Tromsø, 28.09.2013).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to trappist glass. Appearance is a transparent reddish amber with a small rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, butterscotch, slight citrus sour, slight skunk, wood, licorice...this is fairly complex. Taste is coffee, vanilla, butterscotch, oak and even some hop bitterness though faint. Unsurprisingly there are notes of rum as well. Palate is smooth, well balanced, co2 low, drinks quite nice. Overall a very nice beer from I&G, their stuff is usually good but they should consider ditching the clear bottles.

Slowbeer bottle (1-Oct-13) Lovely sweet woody caramel molasses spice aroma. Nice red orange colour, poor head and suds lacing. Sweet caramel malt rum vanilla spice flavour but a bit simple. Rum spice mouth warming finish and light tangy sweet vanilla aftertaste that dies away quickly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL. 6.9%. Pours a ruby amber brown colour with a tan foam that bubbles away slowly. Way lighter in colour and body than Rum Cask. Aroma is roasted malts, oak, rum, allspice and toffee. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped and rich in roast malt flavour. Finish is quite sweet, honey, toffee, and that oaky tinge as you swallow. Delicious.
